Just double the 40-60 gallon amount and you will be fine. I don't dose iron at the moment and the plants are fine, there is some in the trace mix. Figure it out later.
50% H20 change-weekly
Instead of
1/2 Tsp-KN03 3x a week dose 1 tsp 3x a week
instead of
1/8 Tsp-KH2P04 3x a week dose 1/4 tsp 3x a week
instead of
3/4 Tsp-GH booster once a week dose 1.5 tsp GH once a week
instead of
10ml or 1/8Tsp-Trace 3x a week dose 1/4 tsp trace 3x a week
2-4ml-Fe/Iron 3x a week worry about this later.

Get a little pill minder, put nitrate and phosphate in the same box alternating days with the trace mix. On day 7 change water and put in the GH booster. Means you add something to the tank daily when you feed the fish, easier for me. If you miss a day don't worry about it, just add the next boxful next time you feed the fish.
